8-year-old girl uses Kung Fu to fight off home invader

A young girl in Southern California managed to fight off a potential kidnapper in her home by using a Kung Fu move.

Police told Fox 2 that the man broke through the window at the 8-year-old girl’s home in El Cajon. He then went upstairs to grab her and attempted to drag her down the stairs before she managed to use a Kung Fu pressure move on his neck to escape.

“I didn’t even know. I laid asleep while all this was happening,” the girl’s mother told NBC San Diego of the incident.

The said she recently learned the move, which she called “the Cheetah Paw” at her Kung Fu class and decided to use it, “Because it hurt him.”
